The Opposite House is Beijing’s most popular design hotel by some stretch – and deservedly so. Where else in Beijing can you enjoy 15 types of sake with your haute couture sushi, swim in a pool that looks like an art installation, or bump into the likes of Beyonce at breakfast?
The first foray into hospitality by shipping conglomerate Swire and the brainchild of Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, The Opposite House can be summed up as hip, happening and ultra Zen.
Located in the city’s bustling and modern Sanlitun district, you’ll find yourself right at the heart of the action and just a stone’s throw away from the city’s best boutiques, bars and international restaurants.
The rooms, meanwhile, are super spacious and minimalist, with only the essentials in plain view. Everything else – from the Nespresso coffee machine to an array of international plug sockets – are cleverly concealed behind blonde wood facades.
Some of the many other reasons to stay? The lobby that doubles as an art gallery (and holds fabulous cocktail parties every quarter); the excellent restaurants and bars that have garnered a loyal following among the local cool crowd, and the friendly management team that constantly evolve the treats on offer at TOH. In short, The Opposite House is where it’s at.
